What's in My Makeup Bag: Beauty Blogger Sarah
We all have our go-to products that we can’t live without, all of which make up our everyday looks. Although our must-haves are different based on what works best for our individual skin tones, sensitivities and more, I'm going to walk you through the steps that I swear by, and why. Check out my favorite products and everyday routine below!
Before I apply anything on my face, I make sure to wash my face with a light cleanser. I have sensitive skin and one product that works for me is Cetaphil’s Gentle Skin Cleanser ($10.79). It doesn’t irritate my skin and it doesn’t have a strong scent either so it’s perfect for everyday use for all skin types.
After I dry my face, I apply Laura Mercier’s Foundation Primer ($40). It is a good base to apply before you put on your foundation.
I then use Make Up For Ever’s HD Invisible Cover Foundation. It gives me full coverage but isn’t cakey or heavy, like a lot of liquid foundations that I have tried out in the past have been. Plus, it really gives you a totally flawless finish!
My all-time favorite blush is Peaches by MAC ($22). The color lasts all day, and the product lasts forever—it took me over 7 months to hit the pan and that’s after using it everyday!
The palette that I use daily is the Naked 2 Palette by Urban Decay ($64). I like this palette best out of the brand's three versions because this one has both brown and grey tones. It’s perfect for creating a smoky eye, or even just a neutral look to wear everyday like I do. The brush that comes with this palette is double ended and is my go-to brush for my eyes.
I apply black eyeliner daily on my bottom lash line and my favorite at the moment is bareMinerals Lasting Line Long-Wearing Eyeliner ($16). It glides really well without feeling dry like some pencil liners can. It includes a smudge tip for blending and also comes in many different colors.
I am always going back and forth between mascaras, however my favorite at the moment is Clinique’s High Impact Mascara ($16.50). I’ve always liked Clinique’s mascaras because they don’t clump and they are extremely volumizing.
There are two lip products that I consider my absolute favorites. Depending on the look I am going for, I will reach into my makeup bag for one of the following products.
The first is Hourglass’s Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick ($28). I have been using this lipstick for about six months now and the reason I love it is because it is well-pigmented and it applies very smoothly onto lips. It keeps my lips moisturized and the shade lasts all day long. If you’re like me and live in a cold city and find yourself with chapped lips often, this is the product for you.
The second lip product I use often is Clinique’s Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm ($17). I like this one because it's got the color of a lipstick, but has the consistency of a lip balm. I like to throw this on before class and it keeps my lips moisturized—and perfectly tinted—throughout the day.
